Scanning probe microscopy [1-3] with the capability of
single-molecule manipulation in combination with tip-enhanced Raman
spectroscopy [4-5] can offer a unique insight to these properties. A STM
and AFM study of nonahelicene (H) on Ag(110) is presented and the
experimental techniques are shortly introduced. The molecular
self-assembly on the surface is presented and highlights the great
control over the local environment. Results from high-resolution imaging
with functionalized and unfunctionalized tips were then used to
determine the conformation, chirality and orientation of adsorbed
H-molecules and to establish the interaction behavior with the
underlying Ag(110)-substrate. Scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS)
allowed an insight to the electronic structure of the molecule. The
first results of frequency-shift spectroscopy with the qPlus-AFM sensor
are presented, as they offer one opportunity for investigation of the
spring-like properties of helicenes. An overview of the experiments that
are currently in progress and conclusions for future experiments is
given at the end.
